Our Daily Devotional:
We Wrestle Not
Ephesians 6:12 KJV: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
What we wrestle against, as Paul writes, are principalities, powers, "the rulers of the darkness of this world," and "spiritual wickedness in high places." Or do we? That is, do we wrestle? Do we struggle against the things of this world that oppose God? Do we fight to be holy, to "throw off everything that hinders, and the sin that so easily entangles?" Do we wrestle against that which is ungodly, or threatens to bring ungodliness into our lives, the lives of others, or into the church? We are told in Hebrews, "In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood" (4:12). How far are we willing to go to rid ourselves of the things that cause us and others to stumble? Do we find we often selfishly give into our whims and wants from day to day? Or do we wrestle?

The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.
And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)
The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.
